Atherosclerosis or ‘Hardening of the arteries’ is an inflammatory problem of the vasculature where lipids are oxidized in the vascular wall. This leads to loss of function, potential occlusion of the artery or plaque rupture & thrombosis.
High cholesterol diets can promote these events. In this study a STATIN was compared to the red carotenoid, astaxanthin, as well as lycopene. Astaxanthin was very effective, in limiting the inflammation, as well as vascular damage and lowered lipid levels in the blood.
Dietary intake is limited for astaxanthin: it is normally found in salmon but at low levels. So here is a classic case for dietary supplementation to take advantage of the remarkable benefits.”

Exercise, eating healthy, Whole Foods and drinking plenty of water are key foundations to youthful and vibrant skin that can endure and last. As we age collagen begins to break down…we lose about 1% a year. Yikes! But we can take it all in stride and protect our collagen structure with quality supplementation. Many brands in the market, but I have chosen the recommendation of my friend Dr. Stanley Dudrick. Dr. Dudrick is recognized as one of the top 50 most influential physicians in American history. Dr. Dudrick invented TPN (intravenous nutrition), life flight and has researched collagen for many years. According to him, our entire body has a collagen skeleton. We often think of our skin for collagen, but all of you is collagen! So what better way to protect it than by practicing the basics and adding a quality supplement.

My choice, Dr. Dudrick’s choice, is Glow from AdvoCare. Click the link and check it out! Let me know how you like it!

“He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.”

His Mighty Grace & Tender Mercy were sent to still you in the storm.

People can hold us from the outside. But God will hold us from the inside. How Beautiful. ~Nicole

Encouragement for your day. . .

God has imbedded into the depths of each one of our being a soul. Within our soul dwells His Spirit. Well—that’s His favorite place to reside anyway.

His greatest interest isn’t your bank balance. It isn’t your job title, accomplishments or status.

No…His greatest interest is you.

When you are serving a cool and refreshing drink, the thirsty will step up to your sink.

“And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.”
